Gifts and Talents

I thought these truths were significant to share, which I found on someone's FB this morning:

"To experience significance in life, you must serve with others in ministry. Ministry just means doing good to other people.
Significance does not come from status or a hood ornament on your car or a logo on your shirt. Significance does not come from a bigger salary.
Significance comes from service. Significance comes when you start thinking about other people more than yourself and you give your life away. You cannot be selfish and significant at the same time.
The talents you were given are not for your benefit. God gave them to you for the benefit of the people around you. You are shaped for significance, and you find that significance by using your gifts and talents and abilities to serve other people."

We can use what God has place in us for our plans and purposes, or for His; the first brings us glory, while the second brings Him glory. Whose purposes have you been  put on earth for? There is always time for change as long as you are alive.
